Bi-Ba-Bommel

[Bommel = the german word for PomPom]

I finished another bobble / pompom hat / Bommelmütze / Pudelmütze. The last one I knit last winter for my sister and I just started knitting. For this one I used a knitting pattern from the book “Knitting smitten” by Jessica Biscoe (I own the German edition..) There wasn’t much new stuff in the pattern but I learned one nifty way to knit two stitches together. It really does look pretty.

The yarn I used was from Lang yarns and since I got it from their outletshop it didn’t have a tag anymore. It is very soft and easy to knit with, I liked working with it. A friend of mine bought some as well and while mine was impeccable she wasn’t satisfied quality wise, there were quite a few weak places and felted bumps in her balls.

I made another thing – a pillow, the yarn I used is divine! – out of the book, and a third piece is in the works. (I recently wore the hat, and sadly it is a little small for my head. While inspecting it I realised I forgot to weave in the ends.. It is not something I mind but I guess I was a little too excited to finally be finished with that hat..)
